Row2K Results

PHILADELPHIA - In their final tune-up before the 2011 IRA Championships on June 2, the No. 16 Penn heavyweight rowing team hosted No. 6 Wisconsin on the Schuylkill River, hanging close with the Badgers in the Varsity Eight before Wisconsin pulled away for a six-second win.

On a windy day aboard the Schuylkill, the Quakers were unable to win any of the five races contested as the Red and Blue prepped their boatings for the IRAs in New Jersey next week. The Quakers finished the 2011 season with a pair of Cup wins, defeating George Washington in the McCausland Cup and Northeastern in the Burk Cup.
